Canelo stays long term with matchroom then tbh no other promotor will come close as they will have the biggest cash cow in boxing on their books.

Wonder how long DAZN will still be £2 a month, and how much they'll charge for ppv's.

With so many of match room events on Dazn cant see it being £2 a month for long.

The PPV model I think can work with Dazn especially for the super fights and could see the cost of ppvs being much less than what is on sky and bt box office.

Promoter Eddie Hearn has announced he will no longer stage fights on Sky Sports and has agreed a "seismic" five-year deal with streaming platform DAZN.

Hearn's Matchroom Sport operation will begin the new deal in July, bringing to an end a long-term agreement with Sky.
It means fight nights will come as part of a DAZN subscription with no plans in the short term for pay-per-view events.

"I felt we couldn't push to the next level [with Sky] without increasing the number of pay-per-views," said Hearn.

World heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua - who is promoted by Hearn - is not part of the DAZN deal initially. Joshua has one fight remaining on his Sky Sports contract, after which his team will decide on where his fights will be shown.

If AJ goes with DAZN they'll put the prices up lol. £1.99 a month is not too bad.

Risk for aj is all that promotion he gets on sky sports news will disappear if he goes with dazn.

Price will go up and have a minimum term contract (probs 12 months I reckon) so people can't dip in and out when good fights are on.

They’ve already stated till July it’s £1.99 then will be going up but will still be a good price just think sky charge from £20-25 per ppv in America it’s anything from $50-$100 per ppv think it will be better all on dzan plus Hearn is putting a promotional team together aswell.

Some interesting news over the last 24-hrs is that DAZN has bought bt sports and will have all the rights to the epl boxing ect that was/is been shown at present and in the future.
Makes good heading to see how Frank Warren will feature in regards to his contract with bt sports in regards to boxing.
As for the epl from what I've read the epl has agreed to the take over for football rights here is a YouTube video from yesterday.
Hopefully will happen as be good all round imo what do you guys think of deffinatly going ahead.

DAZN hoping to take over Premier League match rights with bid to buy BT Sport

Not really surprising tbh.

DAZN buying out BT sports and adding PL and other sports to their portfolio will be HUGE and over time think sky will just lose more and more rights to sports.

Shame they won't get 3pm games which was hoping DAZN would get but never will happen with that ban in the UK.

Yes for sure sure and think with Dazn you will see even more sports content coming over especially with the likes of talk shows etc for boxing.

Wonder if it will remain just a subscription service on platforms and devices or whether they will launch a channel on sky and VM.

AJ signs career long contract with matchroom to continue their partnership together it’s 8 years since AJ joined the matchroom stable and long may it continue for more glorious fights ahead.

Just now from the athletic

Joshua’s future fights are not believed to be included in Matchroom’s deal with DAZN which means that it is possible he could remain with Sky despite his loyalty to Hearn. More will become clear after his fight in London this weekend — and after Tyson Fury clashes with Deontay Wilder next month.

AJ most likely will be with matchroom until he retires.

Sure Hearn would do everything he can to get his fights on DAZN as that's where the big money is.

If dazn takes over bt sport, wouldn’t be too surprised if they appear on bt sport box office.
